Avalanche 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160 miles
The headlamps, parking lamps, fog lamps, and daytime running lamps have condensation form on the inside of the lenses during cold weather after the lights have been turned on. This reduces the effectiveness of the lights and can lead to unsafe driving conditions. The dealer refuses to replace the lamps under warranty even though NJ division of motor vehicles says they will fail the vehicle when I take it for the state motor vehicle inspection.
